WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - After an executive order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, Watertown is beginning the process to review its police department.

That was discussed at a Watertown city council work session Monday night.

City manager Ken Mix says he is to work with Police Chief Charles Donoghue and other stakeholders in the community to develop a plan that must be adopted by April 2021.

Mix gave council members an update of their progress.

He said they are in phase one of a four-phase plan and are searching for people to be involved in the decisions.
